Let’s be clear, the President is declaring a national emergency because he couldn’t deliver on a ridiculous campaign promise even when Republicans controlled the WH and both chambers of Congress for two full years. This is a constitutional end run and it’s a terrible idea.

When wanted his wall in December, he threw a temper tantrum and shut the government down, hurting 800,000 federal workers. Now that the President is still not getting his wall, he thinks his temper tantrum should be a national emergency.

Three years ago the American people clearly and repeatedly heard Donald Trump promise that Mexico would pay for his vanity wall. He broke his promise. Back then he *never ever* said that he would take resources from our military and make American taxpayers pay for it.

Our founding fathers enshrined in the constitution a division of powers to prevent this type of power grab from a President. It’s now incumbent on Republicans in Congress to join with Democrats to stand up for the constitution and for democracy.

Declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act, a gross abuse of the power of the presidency, and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that President broke his core promise to have Mexico pay for his wall.

Government shutdowns don’t work. I hope has learned that lesson once & for all. I hope we never go down the road of shutdowns again. The American people suffer & very little is ever accomplished. The President should sign this bill.

Parkland. Las Vegas. Annapolis. Orlando. Baltimore. Gun violence is an epidemic. Thoughts and prayers aren't enough to end it. Those who suggest we must choose between our Constitutional rights and our children's safety are wrong. We can and MUST protect both.

Today marks one year since 17 Americans were brutally murdered at school in Parkland, Florida. 17 others were wounded that day. And hundreds of students and teachers joined the ranks of survivors of mass shootings. Their lives will never be the same.
